The Nairobi Game count takes place every 2 months. All participants are volunteers and many are FoNNaP members. The last count took place on Sunday October 3rd.
Individuals register with KWS or FoNNaP and once confirmed that a block has been allocated, are expected to arrive at 6 am at the Langata gate to receive the data sheets and instructions.
On October 3rd 2010 so many volunteers arrived for the game count that a few had to be turned away! Luckily most FoNNaP members arrived early enough to be allocated a block. There were many volunteers who also arrived on foot and were given spots in other cars. Like all Nairobi Park game counts, it lived up to expectations
